Greetings,

A wonderful razor / blade combo to finish my shaving week off in style.

The Egyptian made razor is another razor i've infrequently used since it was passed on to me today is another example to myself that you don't need expensive shaving products to have socially acceptable shaves...However, it's always nice to use my what i consider "posher shaving items" in my den, but equally the same with my least expensive as i appreciate both and get the same pleasure & enjoyment from both.
I never forget my humble beginning's when i first entered into the wonderful world of traditional wet shaving.

Another pleasurable 3 pass + pick ups near BBS shave with no errors to report.

Finishing to the shave off with a generous dollop of Wilko ~ Men's Aftershave Balm.

My face is feeling super smooth & smelling divine.;)

Stay safe, and enjoy your Day ladies & gentlemen.:cool:

Thu 15th SOTD with New Yaqi Slant Head
Soap
Cella
Brush Yaqi 28mm Synthetic
Razor Yaqi Slant (New Slant Head) replaced by RR G37 Slant
Blade Gillette Super Nacet 2nd
Post & Aftershaves
Ice Water + Special Thayers Mix
Hyaluronic + Old Spice + Cella Balm
Good soap but too mild a scent. Enjoyed the luxuriously thick creamy slick lather though.
Shave with this new Slant head paired with blade was really an experience! It was ohh wow so aggressive with the blade almost pointing out directly between the top cap and base plate. 1st wtg pass was so carefully riding the cap but still suffered 2 weepers. 2nd xtg caused a few more weepers. Gave up...hahaha. Used the RR37 Slant to finished rest of the shave. So much more smoother and comfortable shave with bbs to dfs result. Good post & aftershave. Rating 7.5/10

Comparison of the Yaqi and RR G37 Slant head. On the Yaqi head...the blade feel is really evident..

Thursday's Shave

  • Pre: Argan Oil Soap
  • Brush: TDR 26mm Synbad
  • Razor: Ja Henckels 6/8
  • Soap: Signature Soap - Coria
  • Splash: Proraso Red
  • Balm: Bart's Amber and Moroccan Jasmine
  • Scent: X Bolt
I had a sharpening session last Night and this one had a bevel set and then a Jnat progression resulting in a very sharp but conformable edge. I know I keep saying it but the Signature Soaps Coria is wonderful , a similar scent to Mdc Rose , but with some added elements and a better balance in my opinion.
